Calling all Volunteers

Do you have a talent you can share with the club?

We are a club built on the work and dedication of passionate volunteers, and we are always looking to improve the way the club functions. If you have a skill you are happy to share, or if you will try your hand at anything, drop us a line and let us know.

We would specifically love to hear from:

  • Anyone who is interested in helping plan the social events the club runs during the year;
  • Someone who has a flair for digital media; and
  • Anyone who loves sports writing;
  • Anyone who would like to learn to umpire or who can help out with umpiring 'rookey' games.
  • Anyone who is interested in coaching one of our junior teams.
    • There are plenty of new club events to be organised that need graphics designed and publicised, and we would love to get match reports from as many matches as possible each week.

      If you would like to offer your time and skills please contact us!

      Volunteers make our club!
